Clemente Constancia Killed in Hit & Run in San Ignacio

Clemente Constancia

A San Ignacio resident was killed in a fatal road traffic accident on the Cahal Pech Road on Wednesday night. Clemente Constancia was found dead on the side of the road around five a.m. this morning, with visible signs of him having been hit by a vehicle hours earlier around eleven-forty-five p.m. But the driver of the vehicle did not stop to render any assistance. It is believed that the sixty-five-year-old man was walking to his house located on Martin Galvez Street in the area when he was struck from behind by the vehicle. Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett says that no one has been detained so far for the fatal RTA.
